Explore science, consciousness and the furthest reaches of human potential during this special course hosted in the beautiful seaside town of Milano Marittima on the Adriatic coast. Dr. Nader, an MIT and Harvard-trained neuroscientist and distinguished Vedic scholar, will lead this weekend of self development and inner experience, with discussion focused on the experience and full development of the Self. The Peaceful Mind, Peaceful World course is open to anyone who practices Transcendental Meditation or its advanced programs.
For Meditators, Sidhas or TM Teachers who would like to apply for an Advanced Technique of Transcendental Meditation, this weekend offers the option to learn an Advanced Technique from a certified Advanced Technique instructor, with special instructional videos prepared by Dr Nader.
It’s an important question to ask and exciting to realize what consciousness actually is. In fact it's a lot more than what we, scientists and particularly great physicists think. Consciousness is primordial and is the source of everything in the universe. In fact if we look at it deeper, it is everything.
Dr. Nader has spent the last 40 years probing the deepest truths of life—both as a world-renowned medical doctor and brain researcher and as an expert in meditation, yoga, and consciousness. In a rare livestream broadcast, on the final day of the weekend course, Dr. Nader will discuss “What is Consciousness?”—and share new findings and understandings from modern medicine and quantum physics that will revolutionize your view of the human mind and the world around us.
Dr. Nader is a medical doctor trained in internal medicine, psychiatry, and neurology, with a PhD in brain and cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He was a Clinical and Research Fellow in Neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Assistant Director of the Clinical Research Center at MIT.
He conducted research on neurochemistry, neuroendocrinology, and the relationship between diet, age, behavior, mood, seasonal influences, and neurotransmitter and hormonal activity, and on the role of neurotransmitter precursors in medicine. Dr. Nader is the author of many original scientific publications and books on the relationship of mind and body, consciousness and physiology. Dr. Nader’s interest to explore the full potential of not only the human physiology, but also the human mind led him to investigate and study ancient and modern techniques of self-development.
For many years, he worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who first introduced Transcendental Meditation or TM® to the world in 1958, and who emphasized the scientific understanding and validation of Transcendental Meditation and other aspects of Vedic Science, the world’s oldest tradition of knowledge. In recognition of Dr. Nader’s achievements and profound expertise in modern science and Vedic Science, Maharishi gave him the title Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (MARR). As Maharishi’s successor, Dr. Nader oversees the global administration of non-profit TM organizations in over one hundred countries.
